By the end of next year, every student in Maple Ridge will be going to a seismically safe school, Premier John Horgan announced today.
“Finishing upgrades at Fairview Elementary and Westview Secondary will mean every single child in Maple Ridge is learning in a seismically safe school,” said Premier Horgan.
“We know there is more to be done in other communities. That is why we are working to fast-track seismic upgrades and school capital projects throughout the province.”
Fairview Elementary school and Westview Secondary school are the last two high-risk schools in the Maple Ridge-Pitt Meadows school district.
Premier Horgan made the announcement at Fairview Elementary school today alongside Minister of Education Rob Fleming.
